The Adjunct Artist program began at SOTA in 2002 so that students could interact with professional artists. Since then, we've spent over one million dollars hiring local artists to teach classes like graphic design, creative writing, jazz combo, ballet, hip hop, and guitar. Adding more classes to the schedule allows us to keep classes small. Adjunct Artists classes only have 15 students and the extra classes in the schedule mean smaller classes for the school district funded teachers.
